Benedict Evans
I’ve spent 20 years analysing mobile, digital media and technology, and worked in equity research, strategy, consulting and venture capital. I’m now an independent analyst.
I try to work out what's going on and what it means.


I write a weekly newsletter around tech and media, picking the 10-20 pieces of news that actually mattered and explaining what they mean, with analysis and opinion to put things in context.

Launched in 2013, it now has 150,000 subscribers, with a wide and senior audience in technology, media and finance.


Regulating technology

We regulate lots of industries, from food to banking to airlines, and now, increasingly, we’re going to regulate tech. But that means global platforms collide with local regulators, with complexity, trade-offs and mutually incompatible demands. This will probably be expensive. 


Every year, I produce a big presentation digging into macro and strategic trends in the tech industry. This year, ‘Standing on the shoulders of giants’.
